A home, a hot meal, clothes to wear, steady income, family…hope for a better quality of life…the bare necessities of life! At Another Chance House of Refuge, we believe that all people should have the chance to lead healthy, happy, and productive lives. That’s why we strive to aid underserved families and veterans by providing them with the necessary tools and opportunities they need to improve the quality of their lives for themselves and their communities.

Founded in 2019, our mission was simple: Empower underserved individuals to reach their fullest potential by providing a safe environment, safe housing, educational support, employment training, and self-sufficiency skills. Whether it’s purchasing a new home, starting a new business, or simply opening a bank account, Another Chance has programs and resources in place to aid our participating families in those processes.

Each member of the board of directors offers a specific skill set and has extensive experience working with members of the community, veterans, and businesses all of which contribute to the organization’s diverse list of programs and resources.
